Why All My Tinder Matches Disappeared?

Tinder is one of the most popular online dating apps many people use to find their other half.

Swiping left or right is all users have to do to find their perfect match and begin a conversation.

Each user's matches are stored in a separate part of the app, and they can either start talking to each other or unmatch with a particular person.

Whenever a Tinder user unmatches someone, they are automatically removed from that person's matches list and can no longer communicate with them.

This is the main reason why someone disappears from а Tinder matches list.

However, some have reported that not one but all their matches have disappeared. The issue has been reported on numerous forums and social media platforms by users who were left disappointed once they opened the app and found all their matches gone.

To learn more about this issue, keep reading on, as we discuss the reasons in the post below.

Why do my Tinder matches disappear?

  • Service degradation

According to the official Tinder help page, losing all of your Tinder matches is caused by a technical glitch.

In cases such as this one, users are left to wait, as there is nothing else they can do since the issue is on Tinder’s end. Furthermore, Tinder also explains that you should be fine if you haven’t deleted your account.

On the other hand, Tinder also recommends logging out logging in of the app, stating that this can also fix the problem with the lost Tinder matches.

  1. Open Tinder.
  2. Tap the profile icon.
  3. Go to ‘Settings’.
  4. Scroll down and tap ‘Logout’.
  • Users with whom you have been talking have deleted their accounts

Another reason someone is missing from your matches list is that they have deleted their Tinder profile.

Once a user decides to delete their Tinder profile, they are automatically deleted from the list of matches of their matched users.

  • Unstable internet connection

Another reason that is less likely to be a significant factor in the loss of tinder matches, but at the same time, we can’t rule it out, is the unstable internet connection.

Namely, the unstable Internet connection can cause the Tinder app not to be able to load all the matches adequately and make it seem like you have lost all the matches.

What happens if I accidentally delete a match?

Unfortunately, there isn’t anything a user can do if they accidentally delete a match.

Once a match is deleted, they are forever gone.

This is most likely due to the fact that the company is trying to protect the users from unwanted encounters with other strangers.

A workaround some online sources suggest is making a completely new tinder account.

Wrapping Up

Losing all your matches on Tinder can be a frustrating experience, especially if you have matched with a person who has the potential to be your future partner.

As for now, the only official recommendation for this issue is to either wait for Tinder to resolve the issue or to log in and out of the app.
